This lovely place sits right in the middle of a vineyard, which alone is absolutely beautiful. As we arrived we noticed a chalkboard in the entrance to the residence personnally welcoming us. We got to meet our host for the first time and she showed us around the property. The room had an open beam ceiling and the walls are...

Great hosts, very friendly and helpful. beautiful setting and waking up to look out on the vineyard was an absolute wonder. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others and if we are ever in this part of New Zealand again I know who will be first on the list of accommodation options!

Unfortunately we only had 2 nights at this wonderful accommodation before travelling on. We were tired upon arrival and our hosts Trudy & Barry were so welcoming we felt immediately at home. To save us the short drive to a restaurant for dinner Trudy prepared an excellent cold platter which would have been enough to feed four people and we...

Very comfortable setting, spotless clean room, and most notably warm hospitality are what you will find at the Straw Lodge. The owners, Barry and Trudy, would do everything to ensure our stay there was as perfect as it could be. We really enjoyed every moment and would not think twice to stay there next time in town. Very well done...

We only stayed one night in this lodge on our way from Abel Tasman to Northern Island. We wanted to do a quick wine tour and needed one night stay. The Lodge is great. Rooms are outstanding and spacious. Great breakfast and exceptional hospitality (host booked great restaurant for us and took the trouble to drive us over). Recommended

We were lucky to find Straw Lodge and their wonderful hosts Trudy and Barry. They made our stay so memorable. The two cottages are adjoining and tucked right in the Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc vines. The rooms have a king bed, min fridge, wonderful shower and couch. Their local knowledge made our trips to the various wineries much easier...

The only negative to the Straw Lodge is its out of the way location. Once you have found it it's superb. Peacefully set amongst the vineyards the property is a real gem. Rooms are spacious, spotless, comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed a bottle of wine made from the grapes on the property. Our host Trudy made reservations for dinner...

From the moment we arrived we fell in love with this incredible property. Trudy and Barry are warm and wonderful hosts. We were greeted with a welcome sign and had brownies, chocolates and cookies waiting in our room. The property is beautiful and pictures do not do it justice. You will not regret your time here! Thank you Trudy and...

You can almost smell the Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc grapes from your room. The room appointments are spot-on. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful. The Marlborough region is pure delight. Wineries are everywhere. Enjoy!

The lodge is situated in a wonderful location and the room we stayed in was supreme. We spent a very relaxing time. Sitting in the spa pool under a thousand stars was a highlight. Barry and Trudy are fantastic hosts who went the extra mile to accommodate us.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Luxury Bed & Breakfast in a unique vineyard setting Far from the madding crowds, in the heart of Marlborough's wine district, you will find Straw Lodge Vineyard, and our very different straw-bale constructed homestead and Vineyard Suites - a very special place where rest, relaxation and rejuvenation awaits the discerning traveller. Nestled amongst organic Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir vines Visible from each suite are glorious mountain ranges, behind which the sun sets in beautiful displays of rich colours. Before you retire to your cosy king size bed, bathe in our warm spa pool at night, and gaze up at the clear skies filled with a galaxy of stars. Each private suite has a lounge and en-suite bathroom. Full sumptuous breakfast created from local produce Rise at your leisure to a treat of a continental and/or cooked breakfast, created from home grown or locally produced foods of your choice. Then set out on our pedal bikes, take your own vehicle, or book a tour through the surrounding wineries. Internet use is free of charge, as are our golf clubs, DVDs, and a bottle of wine from our vineyard! ... more   less
